Anchorage’s Jeremy Swayman has started to pass some notable names in the University of Maine hockey history book.

The junior goaltender recently became the school record holder for career saves and climbed to No. 2 for career save percentage and No. 4 for career minutes.

Maine Black Bears hockey has produced great goaltending over the years and churned out several noteworthy NHL netminders like Jimmy Howard, Garth Snow and Ben Bishop.

Swayman, a 2017 fourth-round NHL draft pick of the Boston Bruins, no doubt looks to follow in their footsteps.

They all roamed the same crease for the Black Bears and by comparison the Alaskan stacks up nicely.
